Freshman Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) is creating fresh controversy in her second week in the House of Representatives, but this time it’s over a shocking, anti-Semitic slur leveled at her Congressional colleagues for their support of a bill which would allow local, state, and federal agencies to avoid doing business with entities that support the anti-Israel Boycott-Divestment-Sanction (or BDS) movement.

Phil Klein in the Washington Examiner reports that Tlaib “charged that supporters [of the anti-BDS] bill” were torn by their “dual loyalty” to both Israel and the United States, and claimed that the bill’s supporters “forgot what country they represent.”

The “dual loyalty” smear is a typical — if horrifying — anti-Semitic charge, a fact Tlaib is no doubt aware of.

“The idea of Jews as having divided loyalty, and of using their influence to convince others to act against the interests and principles of their own country, is an age-old anti-Semitic trope,” Klein contends.

As Klein points out, Tlaib is a vocal supporter of the BDS movement, which proponents claim is merely a movement against “Zionism,” but is in reality a profound attack on Israel and its right to exist.

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) also lashed out at Tlaib for her comments, outlining the problems of the BDS movement — and Tlaib’s interpretation of the boundaries of Constitutional rights — on social media.

Others pointed out the irony of Tlaib, who identifies as a “voice for Palestinians” in Congress, criticizing her colleagues for considering the needs of a foreign power.

Perhaps more shocking than Tlaib’s isolated comments is that Senate Democrats seem preoccupied with actually debating the pros and cons of the BDS movement, as if it merited real consideration, as part of their official committee analysis of a package of Middle Eastern policy bills headed to the Senate floor.

Tlaib was responding to a tweet from Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who is campaigning to table the anti-BDS bill until after the shutdown. Sanders, of course, avoided Tlaib’s outright anti-Semitism by suggesting the anti-BDS bill hampered Constitutionally-protected political activity, even though the Constitution does not, in fact, protect practices that are at their core openly discriminatory.

Other Democratic senators, including Senators Ben Cardin (D-MD) and Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), tried to keep the anti-BDS bill off the floor by suggesting that Democrats should not consider a single bill on any issue besides the federal budget until the ongoing government shutdown is resolved.

But again, Senator Marco Rubio exposed the Democrats’ reported dirty laundry: it seems they’re less interested in making the federal budget a priority than they are in keeping a nasty inter-party battle out of the public eye.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib may not be the only openly anti-Israel member of the Democratic caucus.

    Her only loyalty is to the “Palestinian” terrorists.

      Could be. She should be impeached or out on her rear, if she does not behave. She thinks she is changing something when in fact all she does is show which sewer she came from.

    . . . . Her loyalty is to the quran and sharia law. It is not to the Constitution. Her even mentioning the Constitution is a disgrace. She can stand there and lie with a straight face because that is what muslims are allowed to do. She is an enemy combatant and a Clear and Present Danger to all of us. She must be immediately arrested along with all of the other muslims in the country and deported.
    . . . . I am a retired Auto Technician that is living on Social Security Disability. I also served in the AF but my disability is not service connected. I am trying to raise the money for me to be able to move back to Texas. I was born there. I am concerned that I may not be able to survive another Wisconsin winter. Here is the link to my GoFundMe page. Please help me out.

    It’s getting closer to an over throw of the government by the people that’s tired of the anti-Americans who got voted in by ignorant people that couldn’t see the wolf in lambs clothing. The ones so violently against Trump are showing their true colors. They are racist and bigots. The Constitution gives us the right to arm ourselves against tyranny. Trump is not the problem. The Democrats are the ones bringing the devil and his minions in to try to take over. I’m preparing to defend my family and I suggest everyone else do the same.

    She is instigating terrorism. Get her out of Congress and lock her up for her hate filled talk that the lib are always trying pushing to crack down on. Now that it’s one of there’s, i suppose not a word will be said to get rid of her or at least control her.

    She is a Muzzie, so what does anyone expect? She only wants to see Israel dissapear from the map! After them, it will be the USA she turns her sights on. WHY in the name of all that is good, would ANYONE even consider voting to our congress, a person with obvious anti Jewish, Anti American, Anti Freedom and anti christian values such as this Woman?

    These Muslims are going to be a BIG problem for the Dems I feel. Nancy Pelosi is going to have to get control and decide who she represents the American People or the Muslims and illegals.

    Instead of musing about her language, how about we start discussing the fact that Tlaib is almost certainly a bigot.
